PH05341: CAST CURRENT_DATE TO TIMESTAMP RETURNS WRONG TIME PORTION WHEN PROCESSED LOCALLY

APAR status

  • Closed as fixed if next.

Error description

  • When CAST cannot be executed on database level IBM Cognos does
    the calculation, but returns current time instead of begin of
    day/ midnight.
    Using constant value like '2018-11-12' instead of current_date
    is working.
    

Local fix

  • Ensure a calculation (here: cast( current_date, timestamp) ) is
    sent to your database.
    Or use an expression converting current_date to string first,
    then back to date; for example: cast(cast(cast(current_date,
    varchar(10)),date),timestamp)
